We are incredibly proud of Level 1 Vocational Studies (Business & IT) student Muhammad Fariz Raziff for his great achievements at the Association of Colleges (AoC) Badminton Competition at both a regional and national level.

Earlier in the year Kingston College entered students into the AoC London Badminton Regional Competition for colleges. The competition took place in Redbridge Sports Park in East London where students from colleges from all corners of London came to compete against each other to be crowned regional champion. Competitors  were also playing for a spot on the London Regional Team that competes nationally against all other areas across the nation in Nottingham,  during April. After winning six group stage matches in a row, Kingston College's Muhammad Fariz went on to be undefeated; winning every single match on the day and booking his ticket to the National Championships.

Muhammad  Fariz went on to  compete in the weekend long national tournament up in the Midlands. He battled hard alongside his teammates from London,  against some very high-level badminton players to achieve a sixth-place finish. This is a record finish for a  London team and a tremendous result when playing against students from colleges across all parts of England and Wales.
After all that badminton one might think Muhammad Fariz would want a weekend off? However, the very next weekend, Muhammad Fariz headed south in to Kent where he participated in the Gillingham Challengers Intermediate Badminton Tournament alongside his brother. Here, Muhammad Fariz went back to his winning ways and collected gold in the tournament, scooping up the £150 Grand Prize along the way.
Congratulations to Muhammad Fariz  on his wins as well as the entire London Team for a fantastic weekend in Nottingham, an outstanding result!
